  1. Reserve 20 small pieces of watermelon for garnish.
  2. Working in batches, place the remaining watermelon, cucumbers, red peppers, onion, chilli, lemon juice, olive oil, 3 tablespoons of fresh mint, ginger, honey and pineapple juice into a liquidiser and blend for about 30 seconds per batch.
  3. The mixture should be well blended but retain some texture. Pour into a large jug or bowl and refrigerate 1 hour. Serve in bowls and garnish each bowl with a couple of chunks of the retained watermelon and 2 small mint leaves.
